The history of Chinese ceramics is a long and illustrious one which dates back many hundreds of years. Famed for their elegant designs and rich glazing, Chinese stoneware and porcelain vases and ornaments are perfect adding a touch of oriental style and elegance. At Shimu we have a wide range of handcrafted new and antique oriental stoneware and porcelain items. From vintage jars and vases, through to ceramic stools, umbrella stands and ornaments, our range has everything you need to create a stylish home.

Antique Chinese stoneware and ceramics

Although we would classify some oriental pottery as stoneware, these items would, in fact be classified as porcelain in China. Stoneware ceramics have been found in Chinese homes for centuries; from high-value wares designed for imperial use, thorough to everyday items. Appreciated for their lustrous glazes, Chinese stoneware items range from practical storage jars and pots used to store oil or ginger, for example, through to bowls and decorative items.

At Shimu we have a beautiful and ever-changing range of Chinese and oriental stoneware items for you to choose from. Each piece is carefully selected by us for its quality, before being shipped to the UK from China.

Antique stoneware items are very much at home in today’s interiors, providing a wonderful combination of eye-catching originality and modern practicality. Storage jars, for example, make wonderful vases, utensil holders or ornaments, whilst traditional ceramic stools can be used side tables either inside the home or outside in the garden during the warmer months.
